Tips to choose your bridal shoes properly
Ladies, we all know: shoes and us, it’s a great love story! Our closets are often full of them, from the pair of pumps for going out to the sneakers, there is something for every occasion. But now that you have found your beautiful wedding dress, you need to find THE pair of shoes that will make you shine on the big day! Dream It Yourself has put together a few tips on how to choose the right wedding shoes to make sure everything goes perfectly on your big day.
SOME TIPS FOR FINDING YOUR WEDDING SHOES
-THE GOLDEN RULE: COMFORT-
Remember that on the day, you will be on your feet, stomping, walking and dancing. You will have very little opportunity to sit down! Comfort is therefore essential. Having sore feet on your wedding day could indeed ruin this incredible day. So take the time to try on several pairs of shoes and walk around in them to choose the one that best suits your daily routine. If you don’t wear a lot of heels, play it safe and choose lower heels to last all day comfortably. We advise you to choose a pair of sandals with square heels, pumps that do not go beyond 7 cm, or wedges to have a good stability on D-day without suffering.
Little tip: It is very important to shop for your shoes at the end of the day. Indeed, your feet are wider and more swollen than at the beginning of the day with the heat. This will help you avoid unpleasant surprises on your big day.
-THE COLOR OF THE SHOES-
Have you selected a color with your other half that will be used in your wedding, whether it be in your decorations? If so, you can choose to match the color of your wedding shoes to the color of your theme! In fact, white wedding shoes have been replaced by colored ones for a few years now: you can dare to use color and make your feet shine by playing with the contrast with your beautiful wedding dress! This will bring a touch of originality and color to your outfit. The effect will be even more coherent if you match the color of your shoes with the color of your bridal accessories such as your hair accessories, your bouquet, your stole, your jewelry and even with the bow tie or the tie of your other half. For a wedding, every detail counts!
-SHOES ACCORDING TO THE PLACE AND THE SEASON-
Then, to choose THE right pair of shoes, it is important to keep in mind your wedding venue and season. You will not make the same choice of wedding shoes for a wedding in the country or in a castle because the conditions will not be the same. Indeed, if you are getting married outdoors it will be important to choose square heels that will not sink in the earth, while this problem does not arise in a hall. Also, we advise you to think about the month in which you will say “I do”: the weather conditions are not the same in January or in August! In summer, flat or wedge sandals, pumps or ballerinas will be perfect. For a winter wedding, we recommend a nice pair of closed shoes like ankle boots.
-THE RIGHT SHOES FOR YOU-
Last but not least, find a pair of shoes that you feel like yourself in. The goal is not to look like the models in the magazines but to feel beautiful and comfortable. You don’t have to wear very high heels! You should wear something that suits your style and habits. Today we have the chance to get out of traditional weddings, to be free and dare a lot of things for the most beautiful day of your life. If you dream of getting married in Converse, go for it!
- Think of a plan B: after standing all day, your feet might be a little sore. We suggest you take a small pair of ballet flats or sneakers to make sure you end the day in style and can dance the night away. But be careful: the height of the heels must be the same as your other shoes, or you risk tripping over your dress!
- Don’t make the mistake of putting your shoes on only on the big day and leaving them in their box until your wedding. A few weeks before the big day (or months if you’ve planned ahead), wear your shoes and walk in them to get used to them! This will help you avoid blisters on your big day.
- Invest in comfortable insoles to slip into your shoes so your feet don’t hurt.
- Think about anticipating your purchase! If you can, we recommend buying your shoes during the sales. This will allow you to save money that you can spread over other expenses in your wedding budget.
